Available for education groups of all levels
Bring your students to the Gardiner Museum and travel around the world on our animal safari! Explore our galleries with an artist and view clay versions of animals from the jungle, forest, sky and sea. Learn the differences among clay, sand and soil. Each safari is followed by a hands-on clay workshop with a professional ceramic artist. Students will create their own 3-D animals and think about their habitats, their food and their young.
Students can return to school with their clay animals or leave them to be fired in our kiln for later pick-up.
Each class will have an opportunity to visit the Gardiner’s famous ceramic monkey orchestra before they leave.
Available as a half-day program and is recommended for students from kindergarten through grade 3 but can be adapted for older students as well.
